The purpose of this album, La rondeña del siglo xix de El Murciano a Falla (The 19th-Century Rondeña, from El Murciano to Falla) is to illustrate the evolution of flamenco guitar and Spanish concert guitar styles, drawing on the recent discovery and subsequent analysis of transcriptions of variations on the rondeña (a cante or song-type, with associated guitar accompaniment style) as played by the “vernacular” guitarist of Albaycín (Granada), Francisco Rodríguez Murciano (“El Murciano,” 1795-1848).

Wayne Shorter was 15 when he first wrote and Illustrated his first comic book in blue ballpoint pen. That was in 1949, and Shorter has traveled great distances since, becoming an influential saxophonist, a 10-time Grammy winner and one of the most highly regarded composers in modern jazz. But as any fan of Shorter's can attest, he has held onto his teenage fixation with superheroes and sci-fi, as well as the comic book arts - so it's fitting that his highly anticipated next release, Emanon, released on Blue Note includes an original graphic novel — a cosmic-heroic odyssey written by Shorter with help from the screenwriter Monica Sly, and featuring art by Randy DuBurke — along with three albums of new music.

“Pure and penetrating” was the violin playing of Johann Sebastian Bach according to the tradition of his son Carl Philipp Emanuel: “He fully understood the possibilities of all violin instruments. This is testified by his soli for violin and cello without bass. One of the greatest violinists once told me that he had seen nothing more perfect to become a good violinist and he could advise nothing better than the violin soli without bass mentioned above.” When Carl Philipp Emanuel addressed these words in a letter to the musicologist and early Bach biographer Johann Nikolaus Forkel in 1774, Bach’s Sonatas and Partitas for Solo Violin were known to a still manageable, albeit growing circle of enthusiasts.

Alpha begins a complete cycle of the symphonies by Sibelius (and of his symphonic poems) with the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra and its new musical director, Finnish conductor Santtu-Matias Rouvali. Originally a percussionist, the 33-year-old trained at the famous Sibelius Academy. His career took off after he stepped in at the last minute to conduct the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra. In the great tradition of Finnish conductors, Santtu-Matias Rouvali is known for his extremely physical and organic interpretations: ‘Music unmistakeably flows from him,’ commented The Sunday Times.

The Venetian singer and composer Barbara Strozzi (1619-1677) was probably the most remarkable, talented, famous and successful woman of her times in the field of music. In 2019 we will celebrate its 400th anniversary with a new program performed by soprano Emöke Baráth under the direction of Francesco Corti, our new principal guest conductor.

Anthemic, sweeping, funky, and lush. This bass-slapping, orchestra-swooshing Japanese “city pop” album rides the slippery-sweet line of definite corniness. I included both album covers because they are both pretty slick. In fact, “slick” is probably the best adjective for this work….really really slick.

"Inspired by the black aura of Romanticism, Novus Quartet’s new disc brings together two major works from the Romantic repertoire. The finest Korean musicians put their virtuosity in the service of Schubert’s moving Death and the Maiden and Berg’s Lyrical Suite. In their own way, these works proceed to the encryption of the feeling of love. It is not a question of hiding it but of expressing it more powerfully than with words. And the intermingling of reminiscences weaves an irresistible poetic discourse – Schubert quoting one of his Lieder and Berg as homage to Zemlinsky’s Symphonie Lyrique.A record that once again allows this captivating quartet to hear the full extent of his talents in romantic music, from the dawn of the period until his last fires.They literally thrive in this repertoire!"

A composition that marked the birth of the modern symphony orchestra, it was instead through the medium of the piano that Symphonie Fantastique became generally known to the public when Franz Liszt - a prime champion of the music of his friend, Hector Berlioz - made a transcription of the work for solo keyboard.

Juste avant leur séparation il y a quelques mois, Les esprits était le trio le plus demandé en France et en Europe, avec 3 musiciens les plus talentueux de la jeune génération. Adam Laloum au piano, Victor Julien-Laferrière au violoncelle et Mi-sa Yang au violon. Pour ce dernier album témoignage, ils y ont gravé Schubert avec des interprétations mémorables, répertoire ultime pour ce registre, qui deviendra sans aucun doute une référence dans le genre.

For his fourth album on Posi-Tone, Downbeat Rising Star vibraphonist Behn Gillece investigates the parallax of perspectives created by the individual approaches of introversion and extroversion which comprise the Parallel Universe. With purposeful intention, Gillece repeatedly shifts his musical focus back and forth between inward to outward perspectives. While doing this, he moves straight forward through a series of original compositions that skillfully combine his high-powered harmonic approach with stunning displays of lyricism and create an engaging set of transformative tour de force performances.

Supernova – the second album of the Atom String Quartet recorded with the NFM Leopoldinum Orchestra is a kind of summary of the interesting and inspiring two-year collaboration of both ensembles. The album features compositions by members of the Atom String Quartet: Dawid Lubowicz, Mateusz Smoczynski and Michal Zaborski for jazz string quartet and string orchestra, as well as Concerto Rosso – a new piece by Polish composer Hanna Kulenty-Majoor dedicated to ASQ and NFM LO.
